Smoothie Shop Charges Liberals One Extra Dollar



George Burnett, a smoothie shop owner from Vernal, UT is in the local news spotlight after implementing a unique pricing structure for his customers: if you're a liberal, you pay a dollar more. According to KSL's news report, Burnett says he will donate the proceeds from this surcharge, as well as any tips received, to various conservative political groups including the think tank The Heritage Foundation. While only a handful of people have volunteered to pay the liberals price, many others have taken to the store's Facebook page to complain about the perceived discrimination. Yet Burnett stands by his methods, noting that he's trying to start a conversation about the financial problems in this country.

3. Only an idiot mixes politics with business.

It is a sure-fired way to become an ex-business owner.

7. Not in Utah

Sorry, I lived there for six months in 2005. It was the longest decade of my life.

9. If he's out in the sticks like Vernal, yes.

If he's in SLC, lots of Democrats who might be customers will walk on by.


He's just pulling a stunt.

9,100 souls in that town.

Bet he sells enough smoothies to afford a "Store Closed" sign when he closes up shop.
